Where will You Park and Hang your Hat in 2017?

Unread post by Grantmissy » Mon Jul 04, 2016 10:05 am

It may still feel far in the future but if all goes well we will visit the following SA National Parks in 2017:

Febuary 2017 - Golden Gate Highlands, Agulhas and Karoo.
November 2017 - Kruger National Park.

Plus a big maybe (dream) in August 2017 - Mountain Zebra National Park.

Do you perhaps have plans or dreams in the making visiting any of the SA National Parks during 2017?

Ritad enjoy looking forward to your September/Oktober 2017 for 15 nights trip to the Kruger National Park. Have you decided on the Kruger map which roads to travel yet :D

Stefan celebrating a birthday in the Kruger is 8)

Elpaco maybe your wife and kids will convince you for a 3 week trip to the Kruger between July/August 2017 :D If you decide to come to visit the Kruger in 2017 may you have many good sightings and :cam: :cam: :cam:

Rooies may your Mafunyane 4x4 trail on the western boundary happen in 2017 - perhaps arrange a braai to "convince your lazy friends “ to commit as well :D

2017 is going to be my "gap year" starting with a six week camping trip in KNP in February :dance:
Thereafter I will go where the wind blows
but ......... things could change, 2017 still feels light years away :wall: so for today I will settle for a long weekend in October 2016 and some time in December

Sadly a South African trip (therefore also a trip to a SANParks) is not going to happen for the Stephens family in the foreseeable future - if ever!!! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
